Tonight the Sharks host the Boston Bruins for some Saturday night hockey. The two teams have already met earlier this season in Boston, where the Bruins pulled out a semi-controversial 2-1 win.
The Bruins sit at .500 and are three points out of playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, while the Sharks firmly have a grip on the third Pacific Division playoff spot. However, it's not yet a quarter of the way through the season, so there's still plenty of hockey to be played.
While Boston is coming off a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings, the Sharks are coming off a 2-0 loss to the Florida Panthers that saw the team be shut out for the first time this season. It wasn't for a lack of trying, however; the Sharks put the puck in the net twice, but both goals were later overturned.
It's also Hockey Fights Cancer Night presented by Kaiser Permanente for the Sharks. Keep an eye out for special Hockey Fights Cancer merchandise to be on sale, as well as pre- and in-game ceremonies to honor cancer survivors. And don't forget to wear lavender.
